Depression is a word and condition that has become much more commonplace in our world today. There are many factors that can make a person feel depressed such as a broken relationship, loss of job, or failing a test. This can be short-lived and a person can eventually overcome them. But clinical depression is another story. If a person notices longer term symptoms such as: constant sadness, irritability, hopelessness, sleep problems, low energy, anger or thoughts of self-harm, it is advisable to contact your primary care provider or a qualified mental health professional. I help a person with depression recover hope, energy and focus by utilizing a person-centered, compassionate approach.

Depression is another natural , common emotion for all of us. It it what we tell ourselves and how we process it that allows for it to get to an unhealthy level. Our therapist takes a cognitive approach to help individuals deal with their depression. We also takes a "here and now approach", helping one move beyond the past and learn not to worry about the future or "what if's". The use of the behavioral approaches, such as staying active, exercising, eating healthy play a significant role in battling depression.
